FLYER  |  Flyer October 2016  


This month in FLYER, we find out what it's like to fly the world's largest operational seaplane, the Martin Mars. The 200ft wingspan, 10,000hp machine has served a long career as a firebomber, putting out forest fires by dropping 7,200 gallons of water at a time. Eyeing up the British market, we've also got a test of the BlackWing Ultra FG, a new two-seat side-by side design from Sweden that promises fast efficient cruising at microlight weights. Infringements can hit the headlines when a private pilot flies near the Red Arrows – but we seldom hear about 1,000 other potentially life-threatening airspace infringements every year in UK skies. Dave Calderwood investigates. Plus, we talk to Sporty's founder and pilot-store-legend Hal Shevers, in our First Solo feature.

In Accident Analysis, Joe Fournier reminds us that wake vortex risks come from aircraft of all sizes – and not just during take-off and landing, and offers some thoughts on keeping safe when operating around larger aircraft. Flying Adventure, takes you on a project to count elephants and ultimately tackle poaching using microlights in Tanzania, while in Top Gear we try out a new in-ear headset. With all this, plus the chance to save £70 in landing fees, the latest news, comment and much more – it’s easy to see why FLYER is the brightest General Aviation title in the UK!
